Ministry of Justice to speak to 8000 Kiwis around the country.

A FACE-TO-FACE confidential survey run by the Ministry of Justice will speak to 8000 people around New Zealand about the impact crime has had on their lives, with a focus on family violence.

MoJ chief executive Andrew Bridgman said it would take seven months to complete.

“We urge everyone who is contacted to participate. People’s information will be entirely confidential. We want to know the impact crime has had on their lives in the last 12 months and we want to know about both reported and non-reported offences.”

It is not known how many people from Gisborne will be asked as the survey’s participants will be selected at random from around New Zealand.

The survey starts this month, with results published toward the end of the year.
